Norma Jenkins- Me Myself and I
I understand that the E Street Band is fielding requests on their current tour. So how about it, fellas- could you play this Norma Jenkins nugget for me Sunday night? "Me Myself and I" is sort of a scuffed-up reworking of "Tears of a Clown." It's just one of 24 absolutely indispensable songs on this compilation of vintage soul from the Carnival label.
My most recent musical epiphany arrived earlier this week when I heard this version of Louis Vierne's "Toccata" as I was surrounded by wheat fields.
